808s and heartbreak
Today, October 19, 2015, is just as good of day as any for new Kanye West music and the megastar musician has serviced his Soundcloud account without prior warning.
As promised, Kanye West’s impromptu 808s & Heartbreak concert went down yesterday evening (September 25) at the Hollywood Bowl and he pulled out all the stops as he revived Auto-Tune for good reason.
Today, August 30, marks the tenth anniversary of the release for the smash album, Late Registration, but Kanye West obviously can’t be bothered with sophomore year.

With West fading into obscurity ever since his […]
Even with the album dropping back in 2008, rapper Kanye West still has some remnants left from 808s And Heartbreak to present for the world to see. Following a remix to “Paranoid”, West releases the music video for “Coldest Winter” which was also remixed and will be presented with production that has yet to be […]
Now, when Jay-Z stated that the technology of Auto Tune was becoming a joke with Wendy’s using it in their commercials, it was becoming evident that the T-Pain effect was being overdone by rappers. The Shyte has officially hit the fan with this one though, as Flavor Flav, of Public Enemy, makes sure to get […]
